gcc crashes during kernel's make modules

Reported by: x@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: toolchain Version: Trunk
Keywords: gcc ice Cc:


On almost all toolchains in trunk (at least gcc-4.3.3-cs, gcc-4.4.1-cs, gcc-4.5.1, and gcc-4.5.1-l), I get a gcc ICE when the "make modules" command is issued to the Linux kernel build system. I am targetting the kirkwood/Sheevaplug platform. It happens when the asm-offsets.s file is being generated, with this command:

arm-openwrt-linux-uclibcgnueabi-gcc -Wp,-MD,arch/arm/kernel/.asm-offsets.s.d -nostdinc -isystem .../staging_dir/toolchain-arm_v5te_gcc-4.4.1+cs_uClibc-0.9.31_eabi/lib/gcc/arm-openwrt-linux-uclibcgnueabi/4.4.1/include -I.../build_dir/linux-kirkwood/linux-2.6.36/arch/arm/include -Iinclude -include include/generated/autoconf.h -DKERNEL -mlittle-endian -Iarch/arm/mach-kirkwood/include -Iarch/arm/plat-orion/include -Wall -Wundef -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -Werror-implicit-function-declaration -Wno-format-security -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks -O2 -fno-reorder-blocks -fno-tree-ch -marm -fno-dwarf2-cfi-asm -fno-omit-frame-pointer -mapcs -mno-sched-prolog -mabi=aapcs-linux -mno-thumb-interwork -DLINUX_ARM_ARCH=5 -march=armv5te -msoft-float -Uarm -Wframe-larger-than=1024 -fno-stack-protector -fno-omit-frame-pointer -fno-optimize-sibling-calls -g -femit-struct-debug-baseonly -Wdeclaration-after-statement -Wno-pointer-sign -fno-strict-overflow -fconserve-stack -D"KBUILD_STR(s)=#s" -D"KBUILD_BASENAME=KBUILD_STR(asm_offsets)" -D"KBUILD_MODNAME=KBUILD_STR(asm_offsets)" -fverbose-asm -S -o arch/arm/kernel/asm-offsets.s arch/arm/kernel/asm-offsets.c

I'm going to attach a post that works around the ICE. I don't know if it's the best solution, but at least it works for me. The patch would only potentially suppress some debug information, which we don't care about in the generation of this asm-offsets.s file, anyway.

I'm guessing that it's caused by issuing the -g and -S arguments simultaneously (it doesn't necessarily make sense to issue both, right?). It's probably a bug in gcc itself, but I thought I'd post the issue here first, since I'm seeing it in my OpenWRT build systems.
